A Dilettante’s Guide to Filmmaking, part 2: Sketched Out

Just a few pages from my sketchbook, showing aspects of the film in various states of gestation, as well as a look at what one could generously call my process:

A Dilettante’s Guide to Filmmaking

Last winter I made a short animated film, mostly just to see if I could.  It took half a year to complete and the finished product was a bit rough around the edges, but all in all I was pretty happy with it.

Winter is coming again here in the northern hemisphere and I’m working on a new film, this one a bit more ambitious, visually at least.  There’s a lot of work to do, and I plan documenting the process here as it unfolds.  For now, here’s a work-in-process look at one of the (as yet untitled) film’s backgrounds.  Much more to come; stay tuned!

House Haunting

This weekend, for the third year in a row, I had the great pleasure of participating in Rooms to Let: CLE, in which a handful of foreclosed houses in Cleveland’s Slavic Village neighborhood were transformed into temporary artspaces.  I build a video installation around my animation Emergence #2.
